Everyday Shooter “Robot” Player

I love Everyday Shooter so much that I built an applet in Processing that lets you play some of the generative music from the first level, “Robot.” The Everyday Shooter “Robot” Player (requires Java) exists mostly so that I can get the damn song out of my head. I originally thought of just grabbing the song from the data files, but the main mp3 only contains the chord progression. Because much of the music is generated by gameplay, it would be kind of ridiculous to just listen to the chords or record myself playing the level once all the way through and listening to that playback.

Originally, I was going to write an applet that would trigger the sounds roughly when they might trigger during gameplay, so some sounds, like picking up point markers, would tend to happen after you hear the chaining noises. But I ended up being too lazy to do that, and instead settled for my first prototype, which is a simple “press the button, play the sound” applet. Hope you enjoy it!
